The Truth
Muffinlavania (1527)

Haha maze go brrrrrrrrr

Hello peopleeee
Sorry I didnt post anything for like forever, I was working on this for 5 months And being lazy
Anyway, this is probably the best game I have made like ever, it is a game where you explore around and try to escape the island. If you want to actually play the game with a purpose I would read most of this post, but if you just want to walk around and figure stuff out then just read the basic controls part. But first, epic intro time

Trapped on an island, no means of escape

That is, to the common eye. Nobody has made it out alive, nobody even knows what the island is. You got here, not knowing why or how. Nobody to keep you company.... except it. Can you escape?


Basic Controls

There is a thing at the start for controls, so I wont go over that. But, there are some basic mechanics you should know about. Every big place has a sign, which says what the place is called. There are lots of items around the map, if you walk into them you can pick them up. Item spawns are semi random, meaning that yes rng can play a role in some situations. You can equip/unequip and drop items whenever you want, but you can only hold 3 items at a time. Some places you need to do something to enter (Must power the lab to enter, must have a full diving gear in your inventory to enter the lake.)

That is all you really need to know to run around, but if you want to try to escape the island you should read on


Tips/Tricks

There appears to be something else on the island, and it doesn't feel friendly. It seems to like the outdoors, and only come close when your guard is down. Maybe sleeping outside isn't such a great idea. Something tells you that there are 4 objects located around the map, but what is so special about these? The Powerplant seems to be able to open up certain passages with Wiring.

(Yea that's all I got lol)

3 Endings

There are currently 3 ways to escape the islands, 1 of which is the hardest, and the only TRUE ending

Raft Ending

There must be a way off the island, by the sea. It seems to tempting... If only I could find something to float on, and maybe even things to row with.


This is the easiest ending, if you know what you are doing you could probably get it in less than 3 minutes

Plane ending

For some reason there seems to be a dormant plane in the southeast region of the island. It looks a bit damaged, but looks like it can be easily repaired. A bit of damage on the hull, the propeller looks shot, and no fuel either. Shouldn't be that hard to do, right?


This is the 2nd easiest ending, yet it's still a challenge.

The Truth

The Truth. For some reason even saying these words in your head sparks some sort of freedom. There only seems to be 2 ways out... right? Yet something feels off. The 4 items, keys if you will, almost resemble the way out, but how? Maybe they could all work together, and open some sort of passage? Even so, you feel that it isn't just another ending. Something tells you that there is some sort of boss that awaits.


The hardest ending, just because of how much you actually need to complete. You need to get the 4 Modules and go.. somewhere. Once you get the final key, you will be transported into the boss battle. This is probably the favorite part of my project, just because it is some sort of difficult and took a while to put in.

Can you escape?

Bugs/Glitches

I will bet that many, many small bugs are in the game, but some glitches happen at random times, and are hard to fix. I know that if you open your inventory while something else happens, you could probably glitch out the code for a few. Also sometimes you could do something and the code could just explode, like literally the entire screen goes brrr and rip your run. I don't know of very many bugs that exist, but if you find one, please comment it with the error message and how the maze looked. (Also I hope that night vision works because it was glitching a lot)
Also i forgot to delete a few test things, and the second part of the cave was blocked off lollllllllllll
Sorrrry

Module E

Module E is an annoying module to get, its probably the hardest to find. It is right here in the first part of the Cave:


The only way to get it is to go there with Module C and B, and you will realize that it isn't any ordinary wall...


Thanks to someone (I forget who) for the KeyboardThread class, I kind of yoinked it from someone's flappy bird project last minute. The inspiration for this game came from a game called Isle, very cool. Also there's some dev secrets, but only for cool developerssssss

I barely tested this game hope it works lol

Here is the real ending. There is more in the ending that I did not want to spoil... Good Luck!

noway15 (97)

found it too @LUCASLI4
it's very emotional

LUCASLI4 (2)

@noway15 Yep. How was the boss fight?

noway15 (97)

@LUCASLI4 it was pretty intense. I'll admit my heart was literally pounding as if I was the one being chased by the spoiler alert. Other than that, it's an extremely nice game.

Whippingdot (678)

This too hard i gave up five seconds in

Muffinlavania (1527)

@Whippingdot bruh theres only only one way to like die, and even then it takes like 10 minutes

megatron0000 (16)

I managed to get myself stuck between items...

Muffinlavania (1527)

@megatron0000 lol you just have to pick them up

megatron0000 (16)

@Muffinlavania I can´t because my inventory is full =/

Muffinlavania (1527)

@megatron0000 wait how is that possible lol
oh wait yea you picked up the item on the wall
idk ill change the script thing so it default drops it left instead of right

noway15 (97)

whare exactly is the whole [reading the maps and figuring out where the user is] part?

Muffinlavania (1527)

@noway15 well its not really a part, its more of indexes and stuff
If you want i can explain it on the repl i shared you into

noway15 (97)

@Muffinlavania I NEED DIS CODEEE Unfortunately I don't understand how it works so... V(o-o)V If I just take the code (but credit,mind you, nothing fishy going on here) then I wouldn't understands, can you please explain it some?

Muffinlavania (1527)

@noway15 are you asking me to explain to you how to make this game

Muffinlavania (1527)

@noway15 br uh
i spent like half a year working on this and the entire code is a mess
i mean i can show you how to make a simple little maze game i guess

noway15 (97)

@Muffinlavania ok works for me, but can you (plez) explain the math part becos my two brain cells try to understand but there is not enough of them to understand

Muffinlavania (1527)

@noway15 i mean i have like 5 minutes right now, but i probably can later

[deleted]

is this supposed to happen?

Muffinlavania (1527)

@ThornGibson did you like drop that, since theres no chance it spawns there

[deleted]

@Muffinlavania yes I dropped that. But is it some sort of glitch that instead of it saying my name it says "Transcendence?"

Muffinlavania (1527)

@ThornGibson what is it (the thing speaking)? also can you like give me some background lol

LUCASLI4 (2)

@ThornGibson You got Module C, so it says Transcendence since you equipped it.

[deleted]

Oh! Ok I admit I was a little tired and didn't understand when I first posted, so I forgot what happened. Thanks for explaining! @LUCASLI4 Also, have a great day @Muffinlavania!

LUCASLI4 (2)

@ThornGibson No problem! Good luck beating the game!

Muffinlavania (1527)

@ThornGibson oh i forgot you posted a screenshot thanks @LUCASLI4

also have a good day too

jihhyuu202 (14)

this feels like roblox isle lol (edit: realize its based off that)

Muffinlavania (1527)

@DylanZhaXcamop totally didnt just yoink the artifact idea and pretty much the whole truth and plane

noway15 (97)


I've done it too
By some fluke, I was able to find the key
I found the secret room.
The Crack has been sealed.
All has been restored.
Secrets have been uncovered.
There are more left.
Goodbye.

Muffinlavania (1527)

@noway15 bruh you got the key and got the truth in less than 3 days epic

noway15 (97)

@Muffinlavania yay
tbh at first I thought that it had to be falling asleep on day 1 after entering the spoiler
the text was all glitched because I entered the Truthat and fell asleep at once lol
I feel like there should be sort of a special ending for that maybe?
(you should definitely make a Truth II, I would definitely upvote that)
and then I tried to replicate it but failed to get the Last Key before falling asleep, so I checked the code(sorry) and found the instructions(technically not cheating since I already did it once)

LUCASLI4 (2)

@noway15 Did you manage to get the key on the first night and beat the game on the 2nd day?

noway15 (97)

:O idk how but I found the key

LUCASLI4 (2)

@noway15 Pretty sure the code just bugged out lol.

Muffinlavania (1527)

@LUCASLI4 @noway15 yea i have to fix the shortcut thing from the lake so sad times

LUCASLI4 (2)

There is a secret...

noway15 (97)

breh @LUCASLI4 you only made it in cause you are one of the names in the
devz
list

Muffinlavania (1527)

@noway15 ye hes my friend but actuallyyyyyyy i made it so devs dont get anything special (At least when he did it) and he actually did it legit which is surprising lol
He nolifes my game for some reason

LUCASLI4 (2)

@noway15 No... I am on the list, but there is another way... It involves a key, and Module D.

LUCASLI4 (2)

@noway15 You can get it too, but it is only available by getting a KEY and going to a place in the ending place

noway15 (97)

@LUCASLI4 right but where is the key

noway15 (97)

breh @Muffinlavania that doesn't help me at all

noway15 (97)

@LUCASLI4 it's atually the other way around, you go to the final chamber and get the key thanks to Module D, and then you beat the Erase and find the hidden SPOILER ALERT REEEE

noway15 (97)

wait so how do I get modules B and C?

LUCASLI4 (2)

@noway15 You get Module C by using a Full Diving Suit thing to dive in the Great Lake. Module B will be available after you get Module C.

noway15 (97)

HOLY MOLY 2149 LINES OF CODE? THAT'S A LOT OF EFFORT MUFFINLAVANIA

Muffinlavania (1527)

@noway15 lol thanks (Cough cough not including setup.py lol)

noway15 (97)

@Muffinlavania wait so how much of this code is relevant to the screen switching, and how did you do the

import os
os.instance

thing?

Muffinlavania (1527)

@noway15 uh for the maze switching thing basically i just made it so that if you are at the border of a map, and you press right or up or whatever, it will do some mathz and then put you in a certain other maze
also the only os things i used were

import os
#Clears screen
os.system('clear')
#Prints out your username
print(os.environ['REPL_OWNER'])
[deleted]

Where is the fourth module????

Muffinlavania (1527)

@LeShuriken Module E is in the cave, its kind of hidden (You need Module C to see stuff, and Mobule B to walk through a wall to get it)
Come to think of it Module E kinda sucks to get lol, i think ill add it on the post

[deleted]

@Muffinlavania oops sorry, I meant to say the other module than module C, B, and E

Muffinlavania (1527)

@LeShuriken Actually its also in the cave, Module A is also in the walls in the 2nd part of the cave (If you have module C equipped and you walk around the 2nd part of the cave you should find it)

noway15 (97)

wait @Muffinlavania but I found Module A without C or B

Muffinlavania (1527)

@noway15 yea you can get A with nothing, but module C tells you where it is if you pass by it with it equipped

SudhanshuMishra (252)

Oh dammit its been neatly 10 mins since I am playing this then I realized that I have my exam tommorrow and i should be studying for it !!! This game is very addicting and coool

BananaJellyfish (210)

I had to scroll for 5 mins just to get to the bottom of the code. Great job!

GhostKing007 (142)

Did I win or lose? Great game btw the plot has been designed very nicely :)

GhostKing007 (142)

Also, I don't know what happened, but I was trying to get the plane ending, so I went into the lab, and then the game just stopped. The orange > thing appeared.

Muffinlavania (1527)

@GhostKing007 1) Raft ending yayyy you won i guess... for now
2) The orange thing happens when repl reloads, idk why it happens but its annoying

GhostKing007 (142)

@Muffinlavania - 1) Ok cool. I'll try to get the other endings now since my exams are done

2) Ok :)
